Loreal Elvive Hair Oil

Revolution- first hair oil that's got non-greasy formula and doesn't weigh my hair which is I must say a miracle in itself. I only used it a couple of times on dry hair and noticed that it nicely smooths the pesky strands without leaving any residue but what I did was brush my hair after putting oil on the palms of my hands and gently go through the hair. I also left it on my hair overnight, tied up and this morning I had a nice curly ponytail without any frizz. Haha that's what I call power of Loreal :)) 

My hair this morning:

What do you think? I'd like to hear your views on this little miracle oil :)

Frizz Central

Probably many of you, same as me, struggle with frizzy hair. Recently mine has just gone absolutely crazy. I've decided not to straigten it or use the hair dryer and it was just a big mistake... I went to bed with slightly wet hair, tried to air dry it ( again what a disaster to say the least). I woke up the next day just to find this:

I thought that taking supplements will help my hair a bit quicker but unfortunately it takes time to bring it back to life, especially after so many colour treatments... I used to have very thick hair and recently I started noticing that my hair feels thinner which is a big worry. 

To bring my strands back to life I've decided to stick with oil treatments and am going to do the treatment twice a week, that's when I usually wash my hair. I've also started drinking baking yeast, but that's a new topic for next post :)

The oil I used this time had biotin and collagen in it and suited my hair much better than olive oil which I used before. My hair this morning was sleek (ish), soft to touch and not so frizzy. However, I had to use my straighteners because at the moment I can't just leave it without any styling if I want to wear it down. That's what it looked like this morning:
What do you do to keep your mane in place? Do you struggle with frizz?

Body Scrubs

Body scrubs ,especially those home made, in my opinion, are the best! Free of any chemicals just pure goodness. My favourite ones are the coffee one and sugar scrub. Both can do magic to your skin if you have them regularly, same as everything else.

Coffee scrub ingridients:

* ground coffee ( I like to use the strongest one as I think that works better)
* oil ( my chosen one is coconut as combined with coffee smells devine ;) )
* gentle shower gel ( your own choice, mine is usually something with almond/coconut/argan oil)

Mix everything together and if the paste is too thick you can add a splash of warm water ( it helps coffee to disolve a little bit). Apply on wet body ( I find if you use this scrub on dry skin it scratches a little bit).

Sugar body scrub ( can also be used on your lips, works great as it smoothes the dry, patched skin)

* sugar ( either normal white or brown)
* preferable oil ( coconut is my favourite)

Mix everything together and enjoy it in the shower. Remember not to wet your skin before as this might result in sugar melting to quickly and not doing it job, i.e. exfoliating dead skin.

Enjoy!

Glowing

I've only been using my True Glow face brush for a couple of days but can see the difference already. The main one is the silky, soft skin on my face and I'm sure that's only because I'm using my brush twice a day, in the monring and in the evening after taking any make-up off. 

I've been reading a bit what can be used together with the brush to improve its work and decided to purchase No 7 Gentle Cleanser as my skin's a bit dry at the moment so thought creamy texture would be perfect to bring it back to normal. 

My routine is pretty simple (as I don't wear much make-up apart from my eyes which I love to accentuate). To take the make-up off I use Garnier Miccelar Water, then I use my brush with the cleanser. To finish I put No 7 eye cream Early Defence and Garnier Ultra Lift Serum, before bed I also put some Argan Oil.


Second good thing about using such a brush is that my skin condition seems to improve a little bit, i.e. it's more radiant and any imperfections are slowing going away. That's brush's exfoliating setting for you ;)

If you ever were not sure of buying such an item, I would happily say YES, just do it!
There are many differnt manufactures and the price ranges probably (here in the UK) from £39.99 up to silly money of hundreds of punds. I've chosen middle range and am pleased with it, as it comes with a body brush too, so it's not only for your face but you can easily use it on whatever body part you wish.

That's it from me... for now me thinks! x
